  1. I see Noblesville following a similar track as North Central
  2. Noblesville is the darkhorse in this conference. They made great progress last year and always play a rugged non con schedule. I expect to see Noblesville surpass HSE and Fishers very soon and break into the top half of the conference. Justin Roden has this program on the move. NOBLESVILLE MILLERS Coach: Justin Roden, 4-6 in 2nd year at school, 51-26 in 7th year overall DATE OPPONENT EASTERN TIME OA 0.0, DA 0.0 Aug. 23 Indianapolis Cathedral 5A 7:00 pm Aug. 30 at Carmel 6A 7:00 pm Sep. 6 Fishers 6A © 7:00 pm Sep. 13 at Westfield 6A © 7:00 pm Sep. 20 Zionsville 6A © 7:00 pm Sep. 27 at Franklin Central 6A © 7:00 pm Oct. 4 at Hamilton Southeastern 6A © 7:00 pm Oct. 11 Brownsburg 6A © 7:00 pm Oct. 18 at Avon 6A © 7:00 pm
  3. Hammond, Gary and South Bend are ripe for Contraction. Clark, Clay and Roosevelt at the very least should shut down, with athletes moving on to other schools in their respective city. All in the name of progress and improved competitive balance. Addition by subtraction.
  4. https://www.newsandtribune.com/sports/remembering-gene-sartini/article_d43fc24a-b9cb-11e9-87a7-9fb14e471b5a.html

  6. People's careers and personal reputations are at stake. Regardless of the legal outcome, individuals can be severely damaged by random comments made on unaccountable messageboards. This is the primary role of the moderator. To evaluate and determine what is and what is not appropriate for further discussion. I again endorse and applaud the decision to remove the thread.
  7. I agree with jimmie Not worth the hassle and legal exposure to allow this to continue Good call
  8. It is what it is Contraction is a real issue I've seen several lower level game cancellations already reading thru the various forum threads. This is sure to continue
  9. Good luck this season Coach. Hope to see you and the boys get some momentum and move that program forward. I will remove Frankfort from my contraction watch list.
  10. Nice Is that 9-12? What are your goals for the upcoming season?
  11. Would like to see the numbers on the following schools : South Newton Gary West Frankfort Hammond Clark Park Tudor Gary Roosevelt Lake Station Caston Fairfield
  12. Really? Is this the new norm at BD? Now we are only looking for the Giants to be competitive in big games? Wow. Times sure have changed. Doesn't BD still have almost 5000 students 9-12 and the best facilities and coaching staff money can buy?
  13. https://www.dignitymemorial.com/obituaries/new-albany-in/coach-sartini-8800615 Coach Sartini Obit attached Very nice event planned to celebrate his HOF tenure at CP.
  14. Condolences to the family and friends of Coach Sartini. Coach is the Uncle of my best high school buddy, Frank Sartini, who was a key member of our undefeated 1978 Highland Trojans football team. Frank was a regular 2 way player at running back and free safety, and we lost him to a broken ankle in week 3 in a rugged 10-7 win over a very solid Bishop Noll team. I never met Coach Sartini, but was very close with his younger brother Larry, Frank's dad. Attached is a classic photo of the two Sartini brothers when they were stationed in Germany. God bless the Sartini's and comfort them in their loss.
  15. Which schools are most likely to contract their football programs before, during or after the 2019 season? Potential reasons for contraction as follows : Low numbers Excessive pre season injuries Coaching turnover Funding issues Pressure from other schools due to scheduling, lack of competitiveness Administrative and /or community apathy Below schools are on my initial contraction watch list : South Newton Gary West Frankfort Hammond Clark Park Tudor Gary Roosevelt Lake Station Caston Fairfield Feel free to add any others to the list, or expand on list of potential contraction related causes.
  16. CG, not necessarily. Based on merit, they would likely bump up to Super 6A very quickly. And there are some challengers in this 6A group : LC LJ CN Homestead Solid programs. With Coach Moore winding down his tenure, anything can happen.
  17. I would like to see the IHSAA split 6A into two separate groups of 16. 6A - 16 schools Super 6A - 16 schools This would create two 4 week tournaments for each class. Add a 10th regular season game and a bye week after week 10. The week 10 games would pit all 32 schools against each other, avoiding potential sectional matchups, and encouraging intersectional games. Example : Center Grove vs Merrillville For starters the breakdown will be enrollment based. Going forward, the classes will, be populated based on merit. Schools in the Super 6A Classification will earn their status based on post season results. Schools can move up and down from Super 6A to 6A based on results from year to year. This format will break up the monotony of the the all MIC 6A final every year, and give other big schools a chance to play for a title. Initial format based on enrollment would be as follows : Super 6A 1112 Carmel High School 1359 1338 1267 1322 5286 2221 Ben Davis High School 1263 1075 1100 1061 4499 3433 Warren Central High School 961 962 960 938 3821 4344 North Central (Indpls.)

Excitement and partiicpation are on the upswing.
  18. North Central wins the MIC in 2019. Kevin O'Shea is a miracle worker
  19. All conference champions should receive a top seed in the sectional and a guaranteed opening round home game. This will give more meaning to regular season play.
  20. Jason Grunewald is interim HC at Munster. Or he was was named to succeed Coach Marsh. Looks like Geffert is likely HC in waiting.
  21. Is East Chicago still open? That would be an interesting challenge for Geffert.
  22. Why do the spelling and grammar suck so bad on this website? Is it a millennial thing? I've read through two brief threads and see mistake after mistake.
